Weekend Dilemma - Advise Needed

Hey guys,

I'm really torn on this decision and could use some input. My GF and I have a big Labor day weekend planned, going to Memphis and sight seeing, etc.. She lives out of town, and would be staying with me. We've had this planned for some time, and really looking for to it.


Two days ago, she started noticing a spot on her forehead. She thought it could either be a spider bite or a reoccurance of the shingles. Last Dec, she had a nasty shingles outbreak on the forehead. She went to the doc today, and he told her it was post shingles nerve damage, not contagious. He was quite confident, but unable to confirm it 100%.

Which puts me in an uneasy position. I'm a hypochrondriac, and shingles scares the hell out of me. And I have no idea if I ever had chicken pox. She told me she would only be contagious if blisters broke out.

Part of me is saying screw it, stop worryign and just have fun. The other half wants to wait and be safe. She did tell me that she understood completely if I called off the weekend. What would you do?

She may SAY that she would understand, but if you call it off expect to get dumped shortly thereafter. Remember, it's not what they SAY, but what they MEAN.

Yup - suck it up.

My wife and two kids have a tendency to get sick together and I don't always catch it. But I do my best to take care of them, regardless of if I'm going to get sick or not.

I realize you probably aren't at that level of responsibility, but it's the same principle.

Just go. More than likely nothing will happen, but if it does, I'm fairly certain Memphis has medical facilities that will take care of you.

Go on the trip. But keep a wooden stake nearby...just in case.

If this relationship feels like it's going somewhere, just deal with it and have a good weekend. This issue might pop up again if you stay together so it's best just to take it head-on now.

Suck it up and deal with it big boy. There is a very low risk to yourself if you both are cautious with things. Have fun.

Re: Weekend Dilemma - Advise Needed

she cannot give you shingles, she could only give you the chicken pox as a worst case scenario.
